today! number five! i'm sally bundock. in business: going going gone — the chinese investor is hungry for business in europe and the us but billions of dollars worth of deals are cancelled — we reveal why. a new white knight for takata but investors are not impressed so what now for the japanese airbag maker? president trump has until the end of monday to file a case to try to lift a federal ruling against his controversial travel ban. it's the latest development in an increasingly bitter legal battle, after a federal appeals court on sunday refused to reinstate his ban on people from seven mainly—muslim countries entering the united states. the court said it wouldn't make its decision until it receives briefs from both sides. it was a judge in seattle who had originally put a temporary stop to the policy, and the president has accused the judge of putting the country in peril. greg dawson reports.
5:02 am
super bowl sunday, an occasion when even the president can switch off and politics for a few hours but from the moment a federal charge put a temporary block on his travel ban, donald trump has had little to cheer. once again he vented his frustration on twitter... the president said he has ordered border officials to check people coming into the country very carefully until a full case appeal can be heard later this week. in the meantime, relief for those affected. this interactive citizen with a us visa was finally allowed to land. as
5:03 am
i was visa was finally allowed to land. as iwas in visa was finally allowed to land. as i was in the air, donald trump site executive order and that made us all confused. the airlines could not let us on confused. the airlines could not let us on board, the embassy could not help us, even the congressmen who knew that i was entitled to come to the country could not help me. as well as claims it was unconstitutional, resident trump face criticism that the executive order was rushed and led to confusion. i think it was very smooth. 109 people out of hundreds of thousands of travellers and all we did was their dead those people very carefully. you would not do anything differently? some of those people did not know what the order really was. secretary kelly said he totally new, he was aware of that. it was very smooth. this is an issue that has divided america, between those to see the order as an attack
5:04 am
who —— and those who see it from donald trump is point of view. it is likely to reach the american supreme court if it hits going. —— keeps going. it's been called one of the most amazing comebacks in the history of sport — the new england patriots have won this year's super bowl. going into the fourth quarter in houston — the patriots were 25 down against the atlanta falcons — who looked set to win their first ever championship. but a tom brady—inspired fightback helped them draw level — the game ending in normal time at 28 points apiece. so, for the first time in its 51 year history — a super bowl went into overtime. the patriots got the vital touchdown and won by 3a points to 28. with the win tom brady becomes the first quarterback to win five super bowl championships. and bill belichick becomes the first coach to achieve that feat. let's go to boston and talk to marc freedman, a new england fan who was watching the game at home with friends.
5:05 am
congratulations. you made it into the headline sequence of bbc news. thank you, very much. it has been a great comeback by the patriots. the first three quarters it felt like it was going to be a dismal day but things turned around, are the greatest comeback ever i frankly the greatest comeback ever i frankly the greatest quarterback and greatest coach ever. are we excited! this is my wife, my son and my friend, tracey. we are the diehards who have remained after the party. it is now mid night here and we are staying up just for the bbc. how did you not turn the tv off after the third quarter? it was hard. you continue to have faith. they continued to win
5:06 am
year after year. there were many yea rs year after year. there were many years beforehand where they were a very bad team but since the combination of tom brady and bill belichick, you never count this team out and it was tough because the falcons played one heck of a game. i give credit to matt bryant. they said they had a lousy de— fence but it was because of that defence that made the game great to watch. i'm sure it was fun to watch the comeback. tom brady and bill belichick, the crowd. brady is 39 yea rs belichick, the crowd. brady is 39 years old, how does the play is such a brutal sport? no idea. there was discussion before the game that he wa nts to discussion before the game that he wants to play another five years. that is insane. i guess he has this
5:07 am
food, exercise regimens. he calls it tv 12, ithink food, exercise regimens. he calls it tv 12, i think it will become a national all worldwide phenomena if he continues to play at the level he is playing out. let's talk about the entertainment away, from the game, what was the entertainment like? we had lady gaga. she was so good. she was professional, i will tell you a little funny story. i was actually in the half—time show in 1986 when the patriots played the bears. the patriots lost badly but i did get to play in the 50 yard line. you must have been at three or old? i was 19 yea rs have been at three or old? i was 19 years old. what was the party like? hotdogs, br? it is the biggest day.
5:08 am
we got to the point that make nobody drinks that much here any more. we ate a lot of food, hanging out with friends and neighbours and that is what the celebration of super bowl is all about. everybody has parties. thank you very much for being with us thank you very much for being with us pretty much all night. congratulations to your team. thank you so much. thank you for having us. you so much. thank you for having us. excellent to have a feelgood stories on world news. us. excellent to have a feelgood stories on world newslj us. excellent to have a feelgood stories on world news. i want to be in that living room. it sounds great. good news for china? good and not bad but not so good. if you want to stay on the feelgood factor at this morning. political events of 2016 may have ignited an unprecedented period of uncertainty for the global economy. but one thing that appears
5:09 am
to remain unaffected is the growing appetite of chinese investors. last year inflows into the us increased by nearly 190%. meanwhile, chinese investment into europe grew by 90% all of this gives the impression 2016 was a good year for western economies when it comes to foreign investment. so will this trend continue? well the uk is about to begin a two—year period of brexit negotiations and this echoes wider concerns over the health of the european union. france, germany and the netherlands are all set to head to the polls later this year and eurosceptic parties are gaining ground in all three countries. and in the us the uncertainty about what the trump administration means for future deals with china is very unclear. during the recent election campaign he vowed to impose punitive tariffs on chinese imports. add to that moves from chinese authorities to crackdown on money flowing out of china.
5:10 am
chinese overseas deals could have been worth billions of dollars more if beijing had not blocked some 30 acquisitions with europe and the us. takata shares were untraded in tokyo this morning, amid a glut of sell orders. that's on reports the airbag manufacturer has selected key safety systems — a chinese owned company based in the us, as the final bidder to back its restructuring. key safety systems — a chinese owned company based in the us, as the final bidder to back its restructuring. the japanese firm has been looking for financial support to help deal with billions of dollars in recall costs related to millions of potentially defective airbags. we will get the latest on that and
5:11 am
all the other business stories. i must admit, president trump doesn't feature in my programme again today. and he picked the patriots to win the super bowl and he did. mass protests have continued in romania for a sixth consecutive night, despite a climb—down by the government. earlier, the government scrapped a decree to decriminalise some corruption offences, but romanian television is reporting that around half a million people have been on the streets, taking part in demonstrations around the country. steve rosenberg reports from bucharest where the biggest demonstration has been taking place. well, here at the centre of bucharest, these protesters have got what they wanted. earlier, romania's government cancelled its controversial decree, that would have shielded some public officials who had abused their office from prosecution. and it was these crowds, it was pressure from the streets, which forced the government into a u—turn. but, as you can see, the protests are continuing. and now, many of the protesters here are demanding that
5:12 am
their government resigns. we want them to leave. it's not enough just to cancel it. they did something very wrong, and we want them out. you want the government to resign? yes. we're determined to resist, to keep fighting. to keep fighting until the current government steps down. we believe that they've lost credibility, notjust with the romanian people, but really with other countries around the world. so it's time for them to go. well, these are the largest anti—government protests romanian well, these are the largest anti—government protests romania has seen since the fall of communism. over the last few days, hundreds of thousands of people have been coming onto the streets to accuse their government of backtracking in the fight against corruption. and, here on the square, they are actually projecting anti—government slogans onto the government building. now, the authorities reject the criticism, and supporters of the government accuse judges and prosecutors and investigators of being over—zealous in the fight
5:13 am
against corruption. but mass protests have forced a retreat. this is a victory for people power. france's nationalist leader, marine le pen, has formally launched her bid to become president, with a major speech in lyon. she promised to stand up for france's fundamental values, and spoke out against globalisation. lucy williamson has the details she hugs kittens, shares memories of pregnancy, and has dropped her controversial surname from the party brand. this is marine, a new, softer image for france's hard—line nationalist—in—chief. but the message is broadly the same. translation: our leaders have chosen unregulated globalisation. it was supposed to be a wonderful thing, but it turned out to be horrible.
5:14 am
always in search of maximum profit, with mass immigration and financial capitalism. her election promises, to pull france out of the euro, cut immigration, and give french people priority in housing and jobs, have won her enough support, polls say, to win the first round of the presidential contest. but, without political allies, her problem will be winning the second, and this time she is not the only alternative party on offer. france is suddenly facing the prospect of a presidential run—off without either of its main, established parties. with the leaders of both left and right trailing in the polls, voters could end up choosing between two political outsiders, one fiercely nationalist, the other with a liberal, pro—europe vision for france. emmanuel macron drew twice as many people to his own election rally in lyon this weekend.
5:15 am
not bad for a man waging his first—ever election campaign. if marine le pen is targeting the losers of globalisation, mr macron is pushing its benefits hard. only to be expected from a former banker, perhaps. translation: some today pretend to be speaking in the name of the people, but they are just ventriloquists. they attribute to the french values that are not really theirs. that is a dig at the front national, whose slogan says it is running in the name of the people. but, in this election, there are many candidates from many different parties who are claiming to do just the same. stay with us on bbc news. still to come: eyesore or icon? the pompidou centre in paris celebrates its 40th birthday. this is the moment that millions
5:16 am
in iran had been waiting for. after his long years in exile, the first hesitant steps of ayatollah khomeini on iranian soil. south africa's white government has offered its black opponents concessions unparalleled in the history of apartheid. the ban on the african national congress is lifted immediately, and the anc leader, nelson mandela, after 27 years injail, is to be set free unconditionally. the aircraft was returning from belgrade, where manchester united had entered the semi—final of the european cup. two americans have become the first humans to walk in space without any lifeline to their spaceship. one of them called it a piece of cake. thousands of people have given the yachstwoman ellen macarthur a spectacular homecoming in the cornish port of falmouth after she smashed the world record for sailing solo around the world non—stop.
5:17 am
this is bbc world news. the latest headlines: donald trump renews his personal attack on the judge who suspended his travel ban. the president has until the end of the day to push his case to reinstate it. the new england patriots have made the biggest comeback in the history of the super bowl, to beat the atlanta falcons. more now on donald trump's controversial travel ban. let's go now to steven bender, who is a professor of law at seattle university. thank you very much for your time, professor bender. if i can read one quote in isolation from the judgement by one of the judges, there is no support for the administration's argument that we have to protect the us from individuals from the affected countries. ta ken individuals from the affected countries. taken in isolation, that
5:18 am
sounds like a political statement rather than a legal argument. sounds like a political statement rather than a legal argumentm does, but thejudge rather than a legal argumentm does, but the judge was needing to find a likelihood of success in challenging the order, and an immediate and irreparable injury on a public interest, and if you look at the order in its entirety, i think with the limited information thejudge had to issue a very extraordinary, but also very, very preliminary order, there was enough there, particularly statements made by donald trump, that he may wish ultimately that he hadn't made, because his lawyers certainly did a good job of cleansing the executive order of inflammatory language. but the exhibits that the state of washington supplied the court were certainly inflammatory. in the longer term interest, regarding a resolution in this legal disputes,
5:19 am
was there any ruling on the constitutionality of the executive order? and how important is it that there is eventually won, if there wasn't here? it is very difficult in reading the order to tell which of the many constitutional and also other legal arguments that were made was successful in persuading the judge that there was a likelihood of success on judge that there was a likelihood of success on the merits. it was just too preliminary. as the dispute moves through the courts, which i imagine it may, all the way up, perhaps, to the supreme court, we will get a better sense of which constitutional arguments are successful. certainly the lawyers for both sides are scrambling now, as there are brief stew in the next four hours and then later on in the day, to try and flesh out those legal arguments. and both sides, admittedly, have a variety of legal
5:20 am
arguments that they can make. and thatis arguments that they can make. and that is what we rely on the courts to do, is resolved those, and particularly when they involve questions of national and international import, as these do. thank you very much for your time. thank you very much for your time. thank you. cameroon have won their fifth africa cup of nations with a late goal against egypt. the final in libreville was tied at 1—1 until the 88th minute, and watching the fireworks for us in gabon was piers edwards. cameroon are champions of africa for a fifth time overall, and for the first time since 2002. and throughout this nation's cup campaign they have done things the ha rd campaign they have done things the hard way. prior to the tournament, at least seven players refused to honour international call ups for various reasons, and even during the tournament there was a bonus round involving the players and their federation. in the final itself, they also didn't do things easily. the arsenal star in the first half
5:21 am
was responded to by cameroon, the substitute heading home from close range. in the dying moments a striker produced a moment of magic to fire home and effect the pharaohs' first defeat since 200a. a wonderful and to a very good tournament. an incredible end to the davis cup tennis tie. the match was tied at 2-2, with tennis tie. the match was tied at 2—2, with this young man representing canada against kyle edmund. after dan evans lost his singles rubber, the tie in ottawa was balanced at 2—2. kyle edmund was facing the wimbledon junior champion, denis shapovalov, in the decider.
5:22 am
edmund was two sets up, so victory looked likely anyway. but, when the 17—year—old lost his serve, he did this. he hit the ball in anger towards the stand, but hit the umpire, arnaud gabas, straight in the eye. so default, game, match all over. to its critics it was a monstrosity, more like an oil refinery than a museum. but, as paris's pompidou centre celebrates its 40th birthday this weekend, its reputation as an icon of modern architecture is well established. it has been popular, too. more than 100 million visitors have passed through its doors since 1977. our arts editor will gompertz has been speaking to two of the original architects, richard rogers and renzo piano, about the building's enduring legacy. ah, paris, beautiful, romantic, and radical. a city of revolutions, riots and avant—garde ideas. like the pompidou centre, which in 1977 was like an electric shock for cultural conservatives. a daring, inside—out building, with its guts on show and weird these two self—confessed bad boys were behind its creation, unknown iconoclasts back then, respected pillars of society today. they hadn't expected their design to beat the 680 competing proposals. and, when it did, a steep learning curve awaited.
5:23 am
we were very naive. i mean, we were young kids out of school, without work. but, as very many naive people, we didn't realise how complicated it was. had we realised, i doubt we would've done the competition. and it was a miracle we were taken. we had court cases against us, everybody hated it, nobody had worse press than we did. it was only when it opened, and people started to line up and come in, and the figures were fantastic, it changed. this building was a shift, it was celebrating a shift, a change. yes. and when the change occurs in society, it's never easy, it's never easy. you cannot expect to build a change like this that was not due to us. the change was in the air. it was in the air of may, '68, it was in the air all the time. so you've got to have a change. so we were just simply
5:24 am
building the change. what were your reference points? where had you seen similar ideas executed? it was a cross between new york's times square, which was full of love and glitter and so on, and sex and all the rest of it, but it was lovely because people wanted to get there, and the british museum, a symbol of one of the greatest museums of the world, where you could sit down and do a deep cultural study. beauty can change the world. it can help to change the world, because it becomes a unifying element. i think beauty is tremendously underrated. it is actually the glue that holds the pompidou together. their pompidou was a utopian project where people can explore art and ideas. a ao—year—old concept that they would argue is even more relevant today. will gompertz, bbc news, paris. let's return to the us super bowl, and that amazing comeback by the new england patriots, who have beaten the atlanta falcons.
5:25 am
justin henriksen is a journalist with ktco radio, and sadly for him, a lifelong atlanta falcons fan. he told us how he feels his fellow atlanta fans should cope with the defeat. i will advise that they don't tip cars, don't light fires. we don't need riots on the streets. we need to come together and heal. i think the majority of americans will come together, and despise the fact that the patriots have won another super bowl, despite deflate—gate, spy—gate, all of the other gates that they are associated with. it was a tremendous performance. matt ryan was stupendous. juliojones was so great tonight. he had some marquee catches. unfortunately, it wasjulian edelman of the patriots who had the definitive catch, one of the all—time great catches. i don't know if you have photos of it. edelman made a superb catch in the fourth quarter to keep the patriots in it.
5:26 am
